Whether you love or hate Jeffree Star, you gotta admit that he makes some rather amazing and unique makeup palettes! Jeffree Star’s Blue Blood Palette packaging was inspired by a coffin and a jewellery box, not two things that I would usually mix, but ok, it’s a 5* for originality! When it comes to setting the trend and changing the beauty game, Jeffree Star is the leader of innovation in the makeup industry.
Following Blood Sugar’s highly successful launch, Jeffree Star immediately started cooking up ideas for his next eyeshadow release. He wanted to create a palette with shades of blues, peaches and mints, and here you’ve got it, the Jeffree Star Blue Blood Palette!
Blue Blood, isn’t like any other palette on the market, at least it wasn’t when it was first released. (Since then there have been other ‘blue palette’ releases.) With all the neutrals, warm tones and browns oversaturating the beauty market, Jeffree Star certainly created a commotion when he released this blue-themed palette.
The Blue Blood Palette is part of the Blue Blood Collection which officially launched on March 29th, 2019. Coordinating with the theme from the blue background, blue hair, blue eyeshadow and blue suit – Star revealed the whole collection on his Youtube channel a few weeks before the launch. The collection includes liquid lipsticks, lip scrubs, highlighters and the most coveted Blue Blood Palette. The internet was truly buzzing with this blue fest!
Naturally, everything in the line is blue from the packaging to the shades. The collection is wonderfully curated and aesthetically pleasing. It is definitely one of a kind, just like the brains behind it!
The Blue Blood Palette is an 18-pan eyeshadow with both mattes and shimmers. The palette feels extremely sturdy, kind of how you would expect a coffin to feel! Now that I know how a coffin feels, but it’s what I would expect! Now enough of the coffin talk…The palette feels luxurious and looks it too. When looking at it, the vibe I get is ice cold!
When you open it, it comes with a lovely full-size mirror and amply sized shadows with Jeffree Star’s signature logo embossed onto the shadows as well as a few others like a coffin and diamond. They all add more to the fun factor of the palette. Like all the other Jeffree Star products, the Blue Blood palette is vegan and cruelty-free.
Expect nothing less when it comes to Jeffree Star shade names. Just like him, the shade names on the Blue Blood are witty, shocking, yet fit perfectly with the blue-theme of this collection. With names like Crystal Flesh, I’m Cold and Deceased you get the idea of what this palette has in store for you!

We all know that we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but the Blue Blood Palette isn’t just worth the face value. The quality of these eyeshadows are off the hook! These shadows are extra buttery, creamy and blend like a dream. When you apply these shadows, they will last you a long time and they hold up really well as you go about your day.
The eyeshadows are pressed pigments, which means it has better colour payoff than regular shadows, all the more beneficial for you! The mattes blend beautifully while the metallics will really make a makeup-lover scream for joy. They are extremely glossy and buttery and give off a beautiful shimmer to your eyelids. Do expect some fallout with this palette since the shades are pressed pigments and do tend to have more kickback.
You might be thinking how you’ll use this especially if you’re not a coloured eyeshadow girl.
Yes, colour can be overwhelming, especially if you’re not used to it. The Blue Blood Palette, although targeted for the creatives, it can also be a great starting point for anyone who wants to play and experiment with colour. It does have everyday-friendlier colours like Untouchable, Priceless, Wealthy and Celebrity Skin.
You can use those light neutral shades, but there’s nothing like stepping out of your comfort zone every once in a while and discovering the possibilities of original and new colours. Become a true artist, one that experiments with colours as they please!
You can start with lighter blues in this palette like the MinTea, and I’m Cold shades. These shades are great to blend all over your eyelids to create a simple pop of colour. You might expect the pastels to be patchy and dry, but the light colours on this palette are as opaque as they can get!
The Blue Blood Palette is one of those palettes that take eyeshadows to the next level! From its packaging and names to its colours and quality. Even if blue and Jeffree Star aren’t your things, you can still appreciate the creativity of this palette!
I love my neutrals and I’ll admit these colours are a little too bold for me, however, this Blue Blood Palette is exceptionally impressive! You can never go wrong with Jeffree Star Cosmetics and their products. The Jeffree Star Blue Blood Palette is another addition to their high-quality goodness, especially if blue colours are your thing!
Jeffree Star is a genius when it comes to his Cosmetic brand and products. The Blue Blood Palette is truly unique and it will force you to think out of the box. Blue Blood Palette is a fun addition to the regular eyeshadow palettes, it allows you to experiment and be more creative when it comes to your makeup look.
As Jeffree Star would say, this has my approval and you should go get it! From the packaging to the quality, you will get a lot out of your purchase.
